From the Author
My short stories almost always arise from glimpsing a real person in a real moment. But not having permission to see how their lives play out, I embroider that little glimpse into my own version of what might have happened, and often leave the reader to fill in the blanks from their own experience.
Cut Loose contains two short stories that were awarded First Prize in New Zealand's Bay Lit Short Story awards for 2010 and 2013.

A regular blogger, Heather Sylvawood writes weekly opinion pieces on Sylvawoodunderthestars and RealEstateRollercoaster. "Blogging is like exercising my mental muscles before I get down to fictional writing, which is so much more emotionally draining."
